The "war" between dynamically typed languages and statically typed languages has existed since the beginning of computing. Never though has the "war" been at its highest than it is now. Python is (arguably) the most used dynamically typed language. Adherents to the statically typed philosophy generally abhor the whole dynamic language thing and are touting Go and D as the replacement for C and the languages all Python programmers should switch to. Conversely Python folks are happy with Python and see no need for the constraints of type that Go and D insist upon – amongst other serious restrictions.

In this session Russel will probe into some of the issues around this area, and possibly some other things as well.

    Why would even ditch anything? Just use the right tool and appropriate architecture for right job. War we put in quotes, we are human parody.

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
